Hi,
translation for the label:
....kristall - Bleikristall  = lead crystal
....arbeit  - Handarbeit = handcraft
Unfortunately I donĀ“t have a clue about the company, never come across this label.
Could of course also be an austrian or swiss glassworks.
Regards,
Dirk

Have a look through here http://www.glassbudvases.co.uk/ Pat, the site owner, is a lovely lady and may be able to help you if you can't find anything on her site. She would also probably like pictures if she hasn't got anything similar.

Hi, thanks, yes I have been to Pats site many times as I also collect that style (and have a few labels not shown). I have a variety of single bubble vases from Bergdala, holmegaard, WF, Krosno, IVV and some unknowns (including this one). I have seen WF on her site, but no others like this. I will try and play with the label in photoshop to see if it says VAV or WAV (under the 3 glasses?) I am sure someone will have seen this label before???

I'm sure Pat would be delighted with pictures of anything you have that she doesn't

Hi, yes, I am sure she would. I have started my own website but have'nt got around to doing all the photos yet. I played around with the label by reversing the original and then overlaying them together. Looks like it says VAV as there would be no room for a W. So...who was VAV from germany, austria or swiss (thanks for pointing that out Dirk). The plot thickens.
